Subject:        Bare Out of Court

Larry Weiss (11 June) is certain as a "fact" that Antigonus and Camillo
do not appear at court together in The Winter's Tale. He is probably
correct and in harmony with a repetition of editors but a certain degree
of caution is always advisable where Ralph Crane's massed entrance
headings and a character's silence provide the evidence to substantiate
one's case. It's odds on (but Foinavon won the Grand National) they
don't, however those "Lords" are just a smidgen worrying. There is a
nice parallel with Mamillus and Perdita - the former eschewing his
wheelchair, jigging at the hoe-down and changing sex in the second half
of a recent RSC production - for those who, like me, are the slaves of
Gestalt psychology.
